Where does the doctor inject contrast into the abdomen for a Ct of the abdomen and pelvis?
C-T, or computed tomography, is a series of x-rays done in 3 dimensional 'slices' of the study area of the body, which allows for very specific detail of the imaged area. A C-T may be either non-contrast, contrast, or both. No matter what part of the body is being imaged, the liquid contrast material is injected intravenously.
